"Lying Scumbag Indian Centre" is what I have now taken to calling this company.
What the fuck is it about Indians and their seemingly genetic inability to tell the truth. To admit mistakes. To say "Sorry, but I fucked it up."?
What is it about their inability to say "Sorry, but this piece of furniture is out of stock and will be for the next six weeks or so, but I will be happy to order it for you, if you are willing to wait." instead of saying "Yes, sir. 550 rials please sir, and vee vill deliwer it tomorrow, sir, of course, yes please sir and vat is your good name?"
Then we have the guys who came to put it all together.
More lies, more half truths.
I gave him a drawing of the bedroom with descriptions of where I wanted the wardrobe and the bed - making sure to clarify that they knew where it all needed to go.
Came back two hours later to find that one of the windows had disappeared because the wardrobe was in front of it, in the opposite corner and angle to where it was on the plan.
"You'll need to move that and the bed to where I told you to put it on the plan. That's the whole idea of a plan, dude."
"Cannot moo da now. Heavy sir."
"You need to get you and your two mates, and the fat lazy specimen sitting downstairs in the truck and get your asses together and move that thing to where I asked you to put it.....now.....please......before one of us dies."
Eight screws per panel in the wardrobe - "Vee vill just use four and save time." and THAT was the real reason why they dared not try and move it!
"No sir. (More lies coming.) That is design sir. Denmark. Very gooda qwalitee."
Turn my back for two seconds. Unmerciful crash. Wardrobe in pieces on the floor.
All four twats now standing in a line in front of it, in a pathetic attempt to hide their gross incompetence, now realising that all screws and the metal support beam they left standing in the corner were indeed necessary for the satisfactory construction of said piece of furniture.
"Get the fuck out of my house!"
"No but sir, please."
New stuff arrived yesterday. No carpenters. Will do it myself. It really is the only way.
